    HIGGINS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. HIGGINS. Mr. Speaker, today we will consider a House Republican message bill that makes a point about spending and budget deficits. The problem is all those who support this bill about spending did all the spending: two tax cuts that gave us the worst period of job growth in the past 75 years and our Nation's worst recession; two wars, unpaid for, that took $1.5 trillion out of the American economy; a drug prescription program, unpaid for, cost $1 trillion over ten years.

    The big spenders, who falsely claim to be concerned about the job creators are, in fact, the debt and deficit makers.
